Dear All About Jazz Readers,

If you're familiar with All About Jazz, you know that we've dedicated over two decades to supporting jazz as an art form, and more importantly, the creative musicians who make it.

This combination will not only improve your AAJ experience, it will allow us to continue to rigorously build on the great work we first started in 1995. Read on to view our project ideas...

Orbert Davis: Clifford Brown with Strings

Orbert Davis: Symphony Centre, Buntrock Hall, Chicago. 15th May, 2013

This is Clifford Brown with Strings (EmArcy, 1955). I was a teenager when I first heard this incredible album—the depth is in its subtleties—and Clifford is so perfect with the string writing of Neal Hefti. It's a true blending of classical and jazz.

The first thing I knew—this is funny—I recognized the name Neal Hefti from the Batman theme!

For me as a trumpet player I study Clifford Brown; as an arranger I study Neal Hefti, so this brings both those worlds together and it did so when I was back in high school when I discovered this recording.

This is my One LP!
